Metro Detroit weather: Rainy morning, evening and dry in between

Thursday highs near 50 degrees

Here is the weather forecast for Metro Detroit.

DETROITGood Thursday afternoon!

The skies remain overcast today with very few breaks.

Highs will hit the upper 40s to near 50 degrees, with a steady breeze moving SSW at 8-18 mph, gusting to 25 mph at times. Those winds will make temps feel more like the upper 30s to low 40s.

More rain showers will move in ahead of a cold front late Thursday afternoon and/or evening. So, we have rain chances during our evening commute. We aren’t predicting anything crazy or severe.

The National Weather Service will be assisting in our rescheduled statewide tornado drill at 1 p.m. Remember, this is only a test.

The moisture moving in late today is worth watching for a switch to snow later tonight, but most of us will deal with mainly rain showers later tonight only mixing with a few flakes.

Today’s sunset is at 7:50 p.m.

Repeat on Friday

We’ll see a light wintry mix to mostly rain overnight into early Friday, and then Friday will be a lot like today.

Metro Detroit will have mostly cloudy skies and mostly dry conditions on Friday. We will see some limited rain showers, but mostly in the afternoon and evening.

Temperatures will start in the mid-to-upper 30s with high temps in the mid-to-upper 40s. We’ll have a still breeze, moving W at 7-17 mph.

Cooler weekend

We will experience cooler conditions this weekend.

We’ll see a few morning rain and snow showers Saturday as temps dip down into the low 30s. Then, we’ll have some scattered, light rain, which should end by early-to-mid afternoon.

Temps will only range from the low 30s to low 40s Saturday, and we will cool down to the low and mid 20s overnight into Sunday morning. Expect dry conditions Sunday, but only partly sunny with highs stuck in the mid-to-upper 30s.

Next week preview

We’ll still be cool Monday with teens possible in the morning, and then mid-to-upper 30s under sunny skies.

Tuesday will be partly sunny and we’ll be back in the low-to-mid 40s.

We should shoot up into the 50s on Wednesday, but we will have some showers around.
